Double-underlined words with annoying popups when you roll your mouse over them. Just saw one in the Picotee MG thread. When did GW start THAT nonsense, and do any of you tekkies know how to get rid of it?!

I noticed it last night. Irritating. Don't know how to get rid of them, though. If my memory serves me, they tried this once before and it didn't last very long.

I'm not having that problem, so I asked my DH what we have installed on our computer that prevents pop-ups etc, and his answer was Firefox 3 browser.

That is really funny, Nancy, and I'm glad I can't see what you all see. DH has our machine locked down so tight that I don't get pop-ups or spam. Mozilla is a wonderful browser, I'm happy he installed it.

Didn't see them either. Firefox is great. AdBlock is even better.

Oh I hate those, they seem to be everywhere too. I do have firefox but I still get the rollovers.

Floodthelast, Adblock Plus is a free add on to Firefox. No rollovers, no popups, just straight surfing.

I'm not seeing anything either, but then again I see no popups either nor any problems with spyware either.

I'm running safari tiger on a mac

I have FireFox too. Don't get a lot of popups.
